Hello, World!!! As the title of my post suggest, I am having a tough evening. An evening full of depression and grief. I’m still grieving over the death of my grandma. It hasn’t even been a two months since she passed away and I miss her so much, more and more everyday.
Something that I have been doing to help myself is my DBT skills. Specifically, I have been reading. Reading Ship of Magic by Robin Hobb. I am really enjoying the book. If you are a Fantasy and/or Science Fiction fan, you would enjoy the book. In fact it is the first book in The Liveship Traders Trilogy.
I am a huge fan of book series. I am a fan of series because I really get into the world the author created as well as the characters. Sometimes I cry at the end of a series because saying goodbye to the world and character of the author’s creation is difficult for me to do. Yes, I know it is not real however sometimes you spend more time with the series than your own family. Or at least for me it is true.
As many folks around America and most likely the across the world, the dude known as the Affluenza Teen was released from jail the other day. He spent nearly two years in jail on a probation violation. It was his choice’s in life that got him on probation to begin with. Choice’s that should have given him actual time in prison but he chose to use his wealthy upbringing from “not knowing wrong from right” which I think is bogus. It was his choice to drink and drive that led to killing four innocent people.
I bring up the Affluenza Teen because everyone makes choices in their lives. Choice’s that affect other people whether it is a positive or negative choice. For me I have been thinking a great deal about the choice I have personally made in my life. Both the good and the bad. Choice’s I am proud of and choice’s I am not so proud of.
As I end this post about choice’s, I hope you reflect on the choice’s you have made in your life and how it not only affects you but others. Have a wonderful day no matter where you are. Peace Out, World!!!
Good Morning, World!!! I have been thinking about something and yes I know that is a scary thought. In fact the thing I have been thinking about is annoying the hell of me. The thing that is annoying me is that when I met with my new clinician yesterday he didn’t know his extension. I’m NOT annoyed with him because it was his first day but I am annoyed with myself for letting it get to me that he doesn’t know his extension.
I may be annoyed over something so minor or something what I consider minor however I am grateful that my new clinician is a Social Worker. Nothing against those who have a LMHC licensure, I just prefer dealing with Social Workers as they get a broader view of working with various individuals in many different aspects of life.
Thank you for reading my blog. Peace Out, World!!!
